hello @MitchellMc thank you for replying. 

 

Yes unfortunately the sliding door has to stay. we could also introduce some shelving above the dryer also as the ceiling height is 2.7m :smile:

This is the laundry I have. I will upload more pictures when I get the house. But now you can imagine the space I have and the linen cupboard to the left. I have steel frames so the linen cupboard can't be knocked out. Thank you.

Re: How to update tiny laundry?

Hi @khusnil_deo 

 

I totally understand if it is a new build. As my colleague @MitchellMc has mentioned I only recommended the sliding door so that you may use the full space of the laundry. Now that you have mentioned that you have a ceiling height of 2700mm you can definitely place an extra shelf at the top. On the condition that we are using standard-sized cabinets, you would conservatively have a space of 480mm left at the top of your dryer. this is more than enough space to use as storage.

 

Perhaps now would be a good time to explore other areas of your house that you can use for storage. A lot of people use their garage as storage and use large pantry cabinets to hold their household items. You might have an extra-large hallway where you can put in some narrow cabinets? I recommend exploring the space around your house and see if you can find other storage spots.

Let me tag our experienced members @prettyliving and @lifestylebymari for their recommendations.
